Urban greenspace: the incorporation of environmental values in a decision support system.
(International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction, 2006)
This paper provides an overview of work undertaken on measuring the environmental values of green spaces, coupled with spatial analysis tools for aiding decision relating to the planning of urban green spaces. The work ...
Design and use of a virtual heritage model to enable a comparison of active navigation of buildings and spaces with passive observation.
Wide ranging and significant research in recent years has highlighted the need for greater levels of engagement with end users in planning and design of the built environment. This has been against a background of far ...
The effect of air film thermal resistance on the behaviour of dynamic insulation.
The authors' previous analysis of dynamic insulation is extended to include the inner and outer air film resistances with the objective of modelling the variation in surface temperature with airflow. The boundary condition ...
The building envelope as an air filter.
Recent research suggests that fine-particulate air pollution increases the incidence of lung disease and premature death. In this paper, single fibre filter theory was used to predict the theoretical particulate collection ...
Influence of Pr doping on the structural, morphological, optical, luminescent and non-linear optical properties of RF-sputtered ZnO films.
The effects of Pr doping on the structural, morphological, optical and non-linear optical properties have been investigated. X-ray diffraction and Raman analysis reveals the formation of highly c-axis-oriented films with ...
Towards context-sensitive information inference.
Humans can make hasty, but generally robust judgements about what a text fragment is, or is not, about. Such judgements are termed information inference. By drawing on theories from non-classical logic and applied cognition, ...
Futuristic nanomaterials and composites: part I
The present special topic 'Futuristic Nanomaterials and Composites: Part I' captures the structural as well as functional aspects of nanomaterials and nanocomposites that are unique in some specific way when compared to ...
Craft, souvenirs and the commodification of national identity in 1970s Scotland.
(Oxford University Press, 2007-09)
This article explores the relationship between craft, national identity and the souvenir in 1970 Scotland. Britain experienced a revival of craft practice generally in 1970s’ Scotland, but this paper argues that what ...
